    Just an additional note that no one's mentioned yet. Outgoing links matter for DR (more importantly, they matter a lot for link building in general, this is why you pay a premium for a PBN with perhaps only 50 OBL compared to someone selling the same sort of metric PBN but unlimited OBL where you might buy a link for $1).

    If you've got links from 90 DR sites but those sites are linking to 1,000,000 external sites/pages etc. Then there probably won't be all that much effect.

    In my opinion going for a lower DR but lower OBL site should have more benefits than high DR high OBL.

    Note: This is just my thoughts and theory. I don't have any evidence to backup the last point about high DR high OBL Vs lower DR lower OBL.

    Then stick to the questions that are asked and stop copying and pasting crap. Your fellow members will have been helped, they will thank you, and you will get a good reputation on BHW.

    Interesting, didn't know this. So if you link to inner pages, UR will increase, not DR?

    UR = URL
    DR = Domain

    Linking to an inner page will boost UR and give a proportional boost to DR (depending on things like site structure).

    Yes. Build high Authority/Quality links to your Root Domain for boosting DR. You must have proper On-page & Internal linking.

    I have always thought the same, it just becomes a division of power, which opens up lots more opportunities for link building. I am sure that this is factored to some degree by Ahrefs, but Google definitely have this built into their ranking algorithm.

    DR depends on quantity and quality of the backlinks going to an entire domain.
    UR depends on backlinks going to a specific page.
    Give the quality of content and build more back links.

    This is why I love the batch analysis tool with Ahrefs. You can easily paste in prospects and compare OBL. You could even make a quick calculation and divide OBL OR OBRD by DR. The lower the number the better (not accurate by any means but a quick easy to compare).
